Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Review


The Irregular at Magic High School (Japanese: 魔法科高校の劣等生, Hepburn: Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei, lit. "The Poor Performing Student of a Magic High School") is a Japanese web novel series by Tsutomu Satō.
It was published on Shōsetsuka ni Narō, an internet web novel website, between October 2008 and March 2011. Satō reached a deal with Dengeki Bunko and began releasing his work in a light novel format beginning July 2011. The story takes place in an alternate history where magic exists and is polished through technology, and follows Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, siblings who enroll into First High magic high school.
While keeping their connections to the infamous Yotsuba clan secret, they attempt to live their daily life in peace, but Tatsuya is shunned for his apparent ineptness and Miyuki is validated for her magical abilities.
In 2013, each story arc received a manga adaptation with varying manga artists and publishers. That same year, an anime adaptation by Madhouse was announced and was broadcast between April and September 2014.
The Irregular at Magic High School franchise had been localized for English by two companies: The light novels and one of the manga adaptations are licensed by Yen Press while Aniplex of America licensed the anime series.
The anime series was simulcasted on four networks, and was later made available on Netflix. An anime film featuring an original story by Satō premiered in Japan on June 17, 2017, while a second season taking place after the anime series by Eight Bit premiered on October 4, 2020. The season is licensed in North America, United Kingdom, and Ireland by Funimation
